its neither good nor bad.

If you liked Da Capo, you'll probably like this. (just like the negima remake, sometimes its fun to watch a new twist on an old theme)

so far the anime is very sweet, and I intend to follow it. (I'm following like 30 series now?)

Anyway, the main thing about Da Capo was

If I were a betting person, I would bet for a similar ending to this series.

This show is even easier to predict for two reasons though:

DC overall was totally boring, but I really liked the artwork though. I'll just get this to watch it.

Remember that this comment is from a big fan of the D.C. series!! Gift is a great game in itself (top ten on my list for 05) and has the potential to be a pretty big hit, especially since MFI is backing it's production.

(´・ω・`) Nyoro~o... don't judge a book by it's cover!
It's DC all over again, hahaha ^_^.

Originally in the game, Haruhiko and friends already knew Riko was coming back. In fact, Haruhiko was suppose to pick her up from the station. It's really sad that they decided to cut that out in the anime since it was one of the funniest and heartwarming reunions I've seen in game.

Overall, I liked episode two better than the first. Why? Because there's more Haruhiko humor bundled in~ Also Raleigh-sensei speech on adolescence gave me a pretty good chuckle~ ゚∀゚)

Spoiler for Episode 2 highlights:


Looks like the next episode will focus again on Riko and her first love... now who might that be? *hint hint*

Ahhh.. just watched it. Dissappointing... to say at the least. Started much like DC, the plot line is pretty much among the same line too. IMO.

ps: Supposeably the main girl is suppost to be the greatest beauty in the anime, correct? She has a strange hairstlye, though. It sort of gives her a scary apperarance, non attaractive.

Riko looks fine for me though, but I really like the way they potray Haruhiko in the anime, much more funnier than your typical harem anime male lead.

I'm not a game player, so I might be wrong.

Anway, you might want to move this thread to fansubs...

Yeah, that is a very funny pic, although you would miss him if you're not careful, in the first pic.

Well now I've noticed its Media Factory doing all of these shows. Now I know my mortal foe and its not Dr. Demento or Sideshow Bob. By the way are they at all related to M.O.E.

As a few people have already mentioned, this show is just Da Capo: Second Season all over, right down to the music done by the all mighty Hikaru Nanase (Yes, same composer for the two Da Capo shows.. the first episode also gives of a few Lamune feelings, though not at 100%.

Anyway, the first episode was a very nice watch. I've always been interested in the game.. and shall hopefully get around to playing it sometime, but until then this series shall have to do. As for Hakuoro.. Haha, i so didn't click onto that when watching the first episode - hope we get more like this in the up-coming episodes. :3

Umm... what are you talking about, Kaioshin_Sama? That makes absolutely no sense... For the record: Media Factory - a Japanese media publisher (not an animation studio), with a fairly varied anime portfolio (including comedy, action, drama, romance, whatever). I realize you like trolling shows you don't like, but it just doesn't work if it's entirely random and illogical.

Media Factory also published (I have no idea what you have against the publisher, most people pick on the studio) School Rumble, KGNE, Gankutsuou, Genshiken, Rahxephon, Area 88, Burst Angel, Kamisama Kazoku, Kurau: Phantom Memory, Sousei no Aquarian, Twin Spica (yes, the shoujo show about a girl who wants to be an astronaut), and Vandread (among dozens of others) .... are you saying you dislike all of those shows as well?

EDIT: I just realized Media Factory didn't have anything to do with Lamune or Da Capo either - so now I'm really unsure what your point is.

Oh my god, I'm kind of embarassed. I didn't notice they were the Publisher. Fine they um, have poor taste in what they publish for the most part as of late....? Can I chalk this one up to extreme fatigue from assignment crunching, I knew somewere in the back of mind my they were a publisher but chose to ignore the glaringly obvious when make the post for some reason. Anyway, ignore the Toei Douga corralation post. Or if you want to, continue to sock it to me, because I deserve it this time.

But I do want to sound off on one thing. Out of that I can still only pick Rahxephon (BONES) and Area 88 (1985 more so than 2004) as ones I like. The mere mention of Sousei No Aquarian make me cringe as I see that as the ultimate low point in Mecha anime, but its not Media Factories fault really.

Alright, got to run before Xris catches up and slaps down a warning or something for perpetual off-topicness.

That's a shame - Gankutsuou is actually the best of those titles. Though it only has mechs for one brief moment of one episode - and it's the worst part of the whole series.

Yes, Gift also gave me a strong Da Capo vibe, but it's only the first episode - give it time.

Whoa!!!
Spoiler for Episode 3 (MEGA SPOILER):
If you're only going to have 13 episodes, I guess this is one way to make use of them. Crazy!

Edit: Oh yeah, that was the other thing. I'm sorry, but that orange/brown two-piece combo that Riko wore was just plain ugly. And I wasn't a big fan of the black outfit either. Or maybe it's just me...

Edit 2: More thoughts after sleeping on it, since there's no sense in bumping the thread if I'm the only one watching the raws.
